Fishing in Fort Pierce has been incredible. The beautiful weather paired up with boxes brimming with snapper made for “Life in Paradise”. Additionally, Kingfish have been making their mark as we have been catching them regularly in double digits. The excellent fishing conditions made August A+ in our book, and we predict that the month of September will be as productive as the previous months.
Bottom fishing continues to be the main focus and anglers are catching some nice sized Mangrove and Mutton Snappers. The high quality and quantity of snapper will continue and we predict to see Mahi-Mahi and Kings caught in gracious numbers as well. We have seen an increase in keeper Vermillion and Lane Snapper which makes for a tasty addition to the bag.
September shows potential to get a little gusty and slight to moderate wind increases are probable. A little wind does help to cool things down on deck and offers a change to the fishing scene. The snapper bite will continue to be good in shallower waters until these fronts start to push in and the chase is back on.
September will also feature the annual fall Mullet run. The run is a spectacular sight to observe as the ocean comes alive and is teeming with wildlife. This annual event stretches along the beaches and river on the Treasure Coast as great amounts of Mullet congregate. Though we are dedicated to offshore fishing we find great enjoyment in catching Snook and are looking forward to the season opening September 1st.
Keep an eye on the weather patterns and changing conditions to find the most favorable fishing adventures. With the snapper bite still raging and the Kingfish, Cobia and Mahi cruising it's hard not to be excited about September. We look forward to seeing you out on the water.
Tight Lines and Good Vibes!
